This week on HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Oliver ripped the Republican Party for voting to repeal Obamacare before they have any form of alternative idea to replace it.
“Obamacare is not perfect,” he said. “It had and has serious flaws.”
The Healthcare.gov website was broken on the first day of the rollout, Oliver said, and Pres. Barack Obama made a promise he couldn’t keep, that people would be able to keep their current doctors and plans under the ACA.
“Republicans have happily complained about the flaws in the law, taken no responsibility for fixing them and in fact have often undermined the whole thing. But that time is now over,” said Oliver.
“It is their turn to present a plan,” he said, “and the clock is ticking. Insurance companies are deciding right now whether to even offer Obamacare plans for next year.”
So far, in terms of an alternative plan, Republicans have “got nothing,” he said. They stall, they delay, they make promises, but so far there’s been no evidence of any progress.
Time is running out for the GOP, though, he said, “Tick tock, motherf*ckers!”

Trump lies to the press about his massive tax increasing while departing to France for the G7 Summit
President Donald Trump was caught repeating inaccurate claims when he spoke to reporters before boarding Marine One for his trip to France for the G7 Summit.
"I think our tariffs are very good for us. We're taking in tens of billions of dollars, China is paying for it," Trump argued.
In reality, China is not paying for the tariffs, which are paid by American importers and passed on to consumers, making the announcement a massive tax increase on Americans.
"Our tariffs are working out very well for us, people don't understand that yet," Trump argued.

Bill Maher dances on David Koch’s grave: ‘I’m glad he’s dead and I hope the end was painful’
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher celebrated the death of right-wing billionaire David Koch, who died of prostate cancer.
"I guess I'm going to have to reevaluate my low opinion of prostate cancer," Maher said.
"Condolences poured in from all the politicians he owned and mourners are being asked, in lieu of flowers, to just leave their car engine running," he said.
"I know these seem like harsh words and harsh jokes, and I'm sure I will be condemned for them on Fox News, which will portray Mr. Koch as a principled libertarian who believed in the free market," Maher said. "He and his brother have done more than anybody to fund climate science deniers -- for decades."
